Texas Map

Texas is a state in the South Central Region of the U.S.. It is the 2nd largest US state by both area (after Alaska state) and population (after California state). Texas state shares borders with Louisiana state to the east, Arkansas state to the north-east, Oklahoma state to the north, New Mexico state to the west, and the Mexican states of Nuevo León, Coahuila, Chihuahua, and Tamaulipas to the south and south-west, and Texas has a coastline with the Gulf of Mexico to the south-east.

Houston is the most populous city in Texas state and the 4th largest in the United States, while San Antonio is the 2nd most populous in Texas and 7th largest in the United States. Dallas–Fort Worth and Greater Houston are the 4th and 5th largest urban statistical areas in the country, respectively. Other major cities are Austin, the 2nd most populous state capital in the United States, and El Paso. Texas state is nicknamed the "Lone Star State" for its previous status as an autonomous republic, and as a remembrance of the state's battle for independence from Mexico. The "Lone Star" can be seen on the flag of Texas state and on the seal of Texas state. The root of Texas's name is from the Caddo language word táyshaʼ, which means friends.
